These sports startups may just be what you need right now

One thing to love about the weekend is that it gives us time to pursue other activities outside of work. Like sports.

That’s not to say that sports is just a weekend thing, but the weekend does afford a longer time for enjoyment of the chosen sport.

Sports is not just a game, though, but a growing business in a region that holds quite a substantial number of sports clubs, organisation, and groups. And as with any business or industry, the sports industry is beginning to develop technology and innovations, such as what these startups have done:

 

1. BiiB
